REPORT: Doubront Could Be On Trade Block

(Jeff Zelevansky/Getty Images)According to a report by Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything), Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront might be on the trading block. The rationale postulated by Cafardo cites the recent excellent performances by both Brandon Workman and Rubby Del La Rosa—making Doubront somewhat expendable. One AL GM is quoted...

Felix Doubront’s Return Leaves Boston Red Sox With Lingering Questions

Felix Doubront’s first major league start in a month wasn’t bad. It also wasn’t very good. Doubront overcame a three-run yield in the first inning of Friday’s 4-3 loss to the Oakland Athletics to give the Boston Red Sox 4 2/3 innings before handing the ball over to the bullpen. The effort, while not awful, was relatively uninspiring at a time when a couple of major rotation...

Felix Doubront Full Of Optimism, Excitement Upon Returning To Red Sox

Felix Doubront didn’t make any major adjustments while rehabbing from a left shoulder strain that sent him to the 15-day disabled list on May 21. However, the Boston Red Sox pitcher is optimistic he’ll produce better results upon rejoining the club’s rotation. Doubront, who slid back into the Red Sox’s rotation Friday with Brandon Workman serving a six-game suspension, posted...

Felix Doubront Returns To The Rotation Tonight

(Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports)Felix Doubront (who went on the DL May 21st) returns to action tonight in Oakland—but his appearance in the rotation may be short-lived. The lefty is taking the spot of Brandon Workman, who was suspended six games for his phantom plunking of Evan Longoria. Workman (and Rubby De La Rosa for that matter) have been so effective as starters that Doubront...

Boston Red Sox: Young arms stabilizing rotation

For a Boston Red Sox team that has yet to find any sort of consistency amongst the entire roster through 69 games, bright spots have been few and far between. But after injuries shelved Felix Doubront and Clay Buchholz — two important members of last year’s team who had failed to find the same success this season — a duo of young arms have emerged and stabilized what could...

Felix Doubront Confident Velocity Will Return: ‘I Can Feel The Power’

Much has been made of Felix Doubront’s diminished velocity. The left-hander, meanwhile, isn’t all that concerned about the radar gun. Doubront, whose average fastball velocity this season sits at a career-low 89.9 mph, worked in the high 80s during his first two rehab starts with Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. But despite a falling strikeout rate and an overall disappointing...

Felix Doubront Allows Two Runs, Six Hits For PawSox In 2nd Rehab Start

Felix Doubront made his second minor league rehab start on Tuesday, and it didn’t go quite as well as his first. The Boston Red Sox left-hander took the hill for Triple-A Pawtucket against the Louisville Bats and lasted 4 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits while walking one batter and striking out three. After working through four innings on just 43 pitches in his first...

Felix Doubront: “I couldn’t feel my shoulder”

Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront exited last night’s start against the Blue Jays in the fifth inning with what the team called shoulder fatigue and afterward he told reporters: “I couldn’t feel my shoulder. It was weird. I felt weird.” Scary. In addition to the numbness, Doubront’s velocity also dipped during the game as he struggled to grip the ball and repeat his...

Boston Red Sox: Solving the Felix Doubront problem

Year three was supposed to be the season he broke out. The young, left-handed Felix Doubront came into spring training in noticeably better shape and seemed destined to finally put it all together for a full season after an 11-6 campaign in 2013. Instead, Doubront has done the opposite, and has fallen flat on his face out of the gates, taking steps backwards rather than progressing...

Felix Doubront Proving His Worth For The Boston Red Sox

It's not every day that a Major League Baseball club signs a teenager, but when the Boston Red Sox inked Felix Doubront when he was just 16 years old they must have saw something special in him. As a byproduct of ex-Red Sox GM Theo Epstein's prevalence in the international free agent market, Doubront was signed out of Carabobo, Venezuela. A country that has become a baseball...
